Magnetically encodable tags in tape format are written sequentially with tire identifying data and applied to the sidewall material of a green tire. The encoded data may be read from the tire at any point in the tire manufacturing process and the signals indicative of the tire identification number converted to an alphanumeric display and/or fed to a process control computer for on-line quality assurance and control or stored as a recorded history of the tire manufacturing process for inventory control.
